• Attendance Arlington Elementary School | Our School

    Chronic absence is defined in North Carolina as missing 10 percent of school days within one academic year for any reason (excused or unexcused).


    Consistent school attendance in the early grades boosts children’s academic learning, achievement, and motivation, while early chronic absence is associated with lower academic achievement, truancy in middle school, school dropout, delinquency, and substance abuse.
